The Normal Heart - Theatre hit from New York

The Normal Heart - Theatre hit from New York On August 1st, 2013 ‘The Normal Heart’ from the American writer Larry Kramer will hit the Netherlands for the first time, at the DeLaMar Theater Amsterdam. The show was a huge hit on Broadway (New York City). The director of the Dutch edition is none other than Job Gosschalk, and is translated by Coot van Doesburgh. Larry Kramer is an American playwright, author, public health advocate,and LGBT right activist. He has been nominated for an Academy Award, been a finalist for a Pulitzer price, and winner of the Obie Award, not once but twice! As a respond to the Aids crisis, he set up Gay Men’s Health Crisis; the biggest gay health organization in the world. With The Normal Heart he wrote the first serious artistic accusation against the Aids crisis The Normal Heart is based on the plaguing presence AIDS had on the city of New York in the eighties. The story is told from the autobiographic experiences of the writer. The overwhelming, moving, and humorous told story is about a group of friends who are in the fight against politicians, doctors, and even media who are hiding the truth about this new disease which began to shake the gay world. A unforgettable theater experience which shows that love is equal for everybody. The Dutch star cast includes ; Frederik Brom, Henriëtte Tol, Freek Bartels, Thijs Römer, Kevin Hassing, Jelle de Jong, Daniël Cornelissen en Oren Schrijver. The Normal Heart is produced by The Normal Heart Foundation and OpusOne/tIJ Theatre productions.
